Q & A

ChicagoZ.com :What got you hooked to the 350Z that you ended up purchasing it?
Saad : In November '02 a buddy of mine picked up a brand new Track Z. I liked it but wasn't convinced, until I drove one myself. Also I ended up purchasing the Z because growing up I was a huge Supra fan but by the time I could finally afford one, I simply couldn't justify spending that much on a car about 7-10 years old. The Z was the closest thing. The only other option was an S4 but fortunately I stuck with the Z.

ChicagoZ.com :What action does your 350Z mostly see? drag, autox, road race, show car, weekend car, and/or daily driver...
Saad : I have taken it to the drag strip in the past, but have not since I modded it. It sees mostly highway pulls, so i guess you could say soad race. I may also put it in a few shows, but that is still up in the air. It was in Hot Imports Night in July 2004. Nothing else..

ChicagoZ.com :Any performance specs? 1/4 mile@mph, whp/wtorq, track times...
Saad : 450 RWHP and 381 lbs/tq. Never tracked post mods.

ChicagoZ.com :What other modifications are you planning on doing to the 350Z, if any? Whether it's performance, handling, appearance, and/or sound system....
Saad : umm..yeaa..I definitely need to get brakes. I want to do fueling and possibly some motor work some time in the future.

Congrats!!! I saw you on Granville and Clark a few weeks ago. Your ride is the tits and sounds awesome as well. I thought I saw a intercooler but wasn't sure. Sorry I couldn't talk back then... lost my voice.

Thanks again guys, Mark i remember that. Your Z looks insane from the front, i jus saw it in my rear view and knew immidiately that it was a hoooked up Z. Well done on that piece too. I have no vids of the car currently , but that is subject to change very soon. I'll try to get one up here, if not i am almost certain i will be at the fields infiniti meet.
